Application

HyStem® cell culture scaffold kit has been successfully used to expand human embryonic stem cells (H9s), umbilical cord blood CD23+ stem cells, hepatic stem cells and hepatic progenitor cells.

Features and Benefits

Customizable and free of animal components, Hystem hydrogel cell culture scaffolds provide a complex, three dimensional environment in which cells are able to proliferate, much as they would in vivo.
  • Customizable - each distinct cell type in a multicellular organism has its own unique microenvironment. Hystem offers the flexibility to tailor the environments of cultured cells to mimic their in vivo counterparts and optimize proliferation and differentiation.
  • Animal Component Free - As a synthetic Hyaluronic acid-based matrix, Hystem offers complete control of the cellular environment. All components are well-characterized, consistent, and derived from non-animal sources
  • Biologically accurate - Rich in hyaluronic acid, the Hystem hydrogel closely mimics the complex three dimensional cellular environments found in life, providing an optimal environment for culturing your cells.
With Hystem, researchers can tailor the incorporation of ECM proteins, cell attachment factors, and growth factors as well as the elasticity of the hydrogel and cell incorporation (encapsulations or top plating) to create the specific 3D environment required by their cells.

Hystem is recommended for in vivo experimentation.

Hystem offers a minimal number of cell attachment sites. If desired, researchers may incorporate attachment factors of their choice.

Heparin Versus Heparin Sulfate Proteoglycans

Heparin is distinct from heparan sulfate proteoglycans (HS) which is primarily produced by mast cells. While, HS is produced by all cell types. Know more about the difference between heparin and heparin sulfate proteoglycan and select the right component for your study.

What is Hyaluronan?

Hyaluronan is a major component of the extracellular matrix. It’s the simplest glycosaminoglycan, and it plays several biological roles.

HyStem™ Hyaluronic Acid Based Hydrogels for 3D Cell Culture Applications

Hystem 3D hydrogels are based on hyaluronic acid, a major component of the extracellular matrix. 3D cell culture can be done using Hystem hydrogels.

What is a Cell Delivery Vehicle?

Cell delivery vehicle are components that can be associated with cells and that allow transplantation in human or animals hosts. These can be natural or synthetic components that will form a gel, embedding the cells.
